Baktash Ahadi is a filmmaker, public speaker, Podcast Host, former Peace Corps Volunteer, and former Afghan Interpreter
At a young age, Baktash Ahadi moved, along with his family from Afghanistan to a town in rural Pennsylvania.
At the time, not many Americans knew much about Baktash’s homeland of Afghanistan at all. That changed dramatically after the events of September 11, 2001, when Al Qaeda militants attacked New York City and Washington, DC.
Al Qaeda had set up a stronghold in Afghanistan with the aid of its Taliban government. With the US invasion of Afghanistan, Baktash’s identity as an Afghan-American was now front and center.
After serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mozambique, Baktash decided to contribute to the US effort in Afghanistan as an interpreter and cultural liaison. Serving alongside Marines, Baktash remained in Afghanistan for three years.
Since his service, Baktash has dedicated himself to telling inspiring stories of those who’ve sought to make the world a better place with his podcast Stories of Transformation.
In this episode you will learn:
- what it was like to be an interpreter serving alongside Marines
- why achieving cooperation between Afghans and US forces is so difficult
- how Baktash is dealing with the mental impact of his service
- why he stayed in Afghanistan for three years
- what the experience taught him about people and life
